Leaf Springs???

Is the leaf pack in the front or rear the strongest? I need to gain 1.5" of lift in the back and I am trying to figure out if I should use some of the springs from another front pack or springs from another rear pack?

Re: Leaf Springs???

The rears have a higher spring rate. I wouldn't go adding a bunch more leafs though. You could end up with a buckboard. If your springs are shot, look for some new ones. What about blocks in the rear?

Re: Leaf Springs???

I don't really like blocks too much, seen bad things happen to them. I'm too poor to cough up the cash for new springs. Already have a couple of sets of springs laying around.

Re: Leaf Springs???

What about a longer set of shackles? Don't know what you have now, but Breeze makes a 5" that will give 3" of lift. NCO has them for $42 plus shipping.

Re: Leaf Springs???

I've got a set of these http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...category=33585
2" lift shackles I've run for about a year now. They work very well in the rear (dont stick out like fangs). They are on my rig now but will be coming off in a few days.

Going Toy axles and coils so I don't need them anymore.

I'll trade you all 4 shackles complete with hardware and a set of new poly bushings for that black soft top U have been trying to sell.

I'll even throw in a few rear leaves if you want them I bent one main (longest) spring and they are usless to me.

No shipping I live in The Colony. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
